Reality Series

The biggest national dance competition to ever hit UK television screens has finally reached our shores and launches tonight on PRIME. In a search for Britain’s best crews, troupes and solo dancers of all styles and ages, Got To Dance looks to discover it’s most talented dance floor divas. The one and only Davina McCall hosts the glittering competition that will push its contestants to their limits as they strive to win the life-changing cash prize of �100,000. Auditions range from the comedic to the sublime and are presided over by a panel of outspoken, world-class experts: West End star and movie actor Adam Garcia, Pussycat Doll Kimberly Wyatt and Ashley Banjo, lead dancer and choreographer of street dance crew Diversity.

Judges will select the best contestants from auditions across the UK, held in specially constructed state-of-the-art Got To Dance domes and in front of a live audience. The chosen dancers will then progress to the spectacular live studio-based semi-finals, where they will compete to win a place in the grand final and the chance to claim the title of Got To Dance Champion 2010. Tonight it’s audition time. We’ll meet the competitors and hear their stories of how they came to be dancing in front of the judges for a highly sought-after spot on the show.

Tonight’s hour long teaser gives a behind the scenes peak of what’s to come in this sizzling new show scouring Britain for its hottest dance talent. We’ll reveal a little of what’s to come from the high pressured audition process right through to those who impress at a staggering level. We’ll meet our three judges and your gorgeous and delightful host Davina McCall. The Got to Dance panel tell us about their dance backgrounds and the styles of dance they love…and hate. What will they be looking for from the auditions and what are their dance turnoffs? Are you not so much of a dance floor maestro? You will be after each of our talented judges present their ‘killer dance moves’ that each of us can learn at home before impressing our friends!

Prime’s 2011 season launch includes more from their steady accumulation of programming assets that has helped the channel to successive years of 30%+ growth and unlike TV2, there are new local shows on the cards.  You probably won’t be seeing much of that NZ On Air logo at the ends of their credits either.
